Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

This is a very dangerous situation - while driving the left front wheel ripped off the chasis....thankfully I wasn't driving at highway speeds or the vehicle might have overturned or hit another car .. luckily there were no injuries or deaths but KIA needs to look into this....my otherwise great little car is probably totaled now... and I am without transportation seeing how the insurance will not cover this.
